My Dearest Love,
The other day at work someone mentioned sugar daddies and knowing someone who had one. They spoke about how much he took care of her, and how she didn’t even have to give him anything in return. He just did it! I thought about that for a moment, and immediately I thought of you. I know, you’re laughing, but in a way that day I realized I have the perfect sugar daddy in you.
I know we both wondered how it would pan out when we switched roles last year. You stopped working sixty hour weeks and I passed on the homeschool mantle to your competent hands. I transitioned into the role of primary breadwinner for this season of life, and you entered the unknown waters of a stay-at-home husband and dad. It was a change for us both, but one neither of us complained about, understanding it was what we needed at the time. I knew it would be different, but I never realized how much.
Do you know that every night when I taste the homemade meal you’ve prepared that it tastes better than the last? Like, seriously I ask myself, “what is it that he does different than me?!” I always thought I was a really excellent cook, but then I tasted your dinners. After a long day nothing fills my belly like something you made in love, and nothing fills my heart more than realizing you did it just for me.
All the things you do for me. It’s amazing. You don’t let me lift a finger when I get home. You do it all. Cleaning, cooking, laundry. You manage to have me a hot meal and clean house when I walk in the door, despite having homeschooled the girls all day. The other day I watched you changing a dirty diaper and realized I couldn’t remember the last time I had! When our daughters ask me for something after a long day you jump in quickly to say, “I can get it!”
And that’s the thing, you get it. You get me, you get this whole marriage thing, and you get how much it means to me to be taken care of by you. You see to all my needs, and just when I think I couldn’t love you anymore than I already do, you do something else amazing.
I know, I know, I’m being super sappy, but I want you to know. I want you to know I see it. I notice every little thing you do for me, and it adds up huge in my heart. I feel like the luckiest woman alive. I go to a rewarding job serving others, and when I go home you serve me. Babe, you are speaking my love language, big time!
Anyway, I just wanted to say thank you. Thank you for not only loving me (I’ve always known that), but thank you for showing me your love in action every single day. If being a sugar daddy means taking care of your lady then by all means you are the sweetest, most generous one on this planet, and I’m blessed enough to call you mine!
